I hate it when I see people asking, begging, demanding for someone to pity them just so that they can feel better about themselves. Some get sick of it and some love it. But why do we rely so much on others, sharing our suffering in order to hear “it’s going to be okay”, when we can rely on ourselves?
The thing is, pity is just that, pity. It won’t make your problems disappear, it won’t help you feel better and it sure as hell won’t make you richer. Successful, strong and determined people never allow others to pity them because they dont allow it in the first place. If they feel down, they keep it to themselves and work on finding a solution. If they’re poor, they never go around showing how bad their life is. They work every hour and every second to push themselves out of the black hole they’re in.
Now I’m not saying that having friends who care about you or family to whom you can tell your hardships is bad, all I’m saying is that why walk around acting like a drama queen when you could be busting your ass to make things better? It’s pathetic and doesn’t make you a victim, in fact, it turns you into a lazy unproductive spoiled little brat who can’t face his or her fears because “you just can’t do it”.
Nothing important has been accomplished while crying, and nothing worthy of attention has been achieved because you shed a tear or two and people joined in in your sobbing.
Whenever you feel like it’s the end of the world, going into drama-mode, remember this: there are people who spent their lives homeless before owning a mansion, there are people who went on years without a job before they ended up founding a multibillion dollar company. Fatalities are inevitable, losses and failure will hit you no matter what, the only question is, how will you deal with it? Will you let it break you or will you pick yourself up and consider it as just a stumble?
Moral of the story, you’re better than to be pitied. Pity is for the weak, for those with no solutions, for those who can’t fight their way back. If life pushes you into a corner and aims a gun up towards your head, don’t start bitching about it, don’t look for others to save you, take out a bigger gun and shoot your way out. That’s what survivors do, that’s what successful people do.
Wipe out all those tears and kick your BFF out. You don’t need all that BS. Now give the world a reason to acclaim you, to hail you as a visionary.
